Pushing haze safety for Indonesian kids

5 Jun 2017, UNICEF Indonesia

The 2015 haze in Indonesia was one of the 21st century’s worst environmental disaster. This acrid air pollution spread by agricultural fires not only creates economic losses, greenhouse gas emissions, and wildlife death, but poses major respiratory health risks, especially to children. UNICEF works with local communities in order to identify solutions to protect children.
